Boyne Brewhouse takes home two international awards at 2017 World Beer Awards in London

‘Boyne Brewhouse Saison’ and ‘Boyne Brewhouse IPA’ are brewed with passion in the heart of the Boyne Valley in Drogheda

Boyne Brewhouse has scooped two International awards at the 2017 World Beer Awards which were held recently in London. Boyne Brewhouse Saison received the “Country Best – Ireland” award while Boyne Brewhouse IPA won the “Country Gold – Ireland” category.

The World Beer Awards is a global ceremony which selects the very best from around the globe in all internationally recognised styles of drinks.

Boyne Brewhouse IPA (6.8%) is a slightly hazy deep golden colour with abundant fruity citrus aroma with a hint of pine. On the palate there is bitter citrus and resin. This is a big bodied beer that can stand up to the hops with a long dry finish. Other awards include:

    • Gold Medal, Dublin Craft Beer Cup 2017
    • 2 Star Great Taste Award 2017
    • Country Gold World Beer Awards 2017

Boyne Brewhouse Saison (5.5%) is a classic traditional “Farmhouse Beer” with a very pale colour. A spicy aroma with pepper and citrus. A light and effervescent mouthfeel with a unique spicy yeast character that dominates on the palate with a dry citrus finish. Other awards include:

    • Gold Medal, Dublin Craft Beer Cup 2017
    • Best in Category-Speciality, Dublin Craft Beer Cup 2017
    • 2 Star Great Taste Award 2017
    • Country Best World Beer Awards 2017

Head brewers at Boyne Brewhouse, Andrew Jorgenssen and Richard Hamilton, were on hand in London’s Olympia to receive their awards. Andrew says: We’re delighted to have picked up the awards on behalf of the Boyne Brewhouse. We take great pride in ensuring that we use only the best ingredients and our own Boyne Valley spring water to go into making our craft beers. Winning two globally recognised awards is testament to the quality of these ingredients, brewing styles and inspirations. The two winners complement the core range of Boyne Brewhouse award winning craft beers.”

Winning at the World Beer Awards adds to the Boyne Brewhouse’s ever increasing list of accolades since launching in late 2015, and follows hot on the heels of 2 Star Great Taste Awards for the Boyne Brewhouse IPA and Saison earlier this month. Boyne Brewhouse Lager and limited edition Imperial stout were also awarded 1 Star Great Taste Awards.
